The August Rodin Collection 

The “Auguste Rodin Collection” comprises of Erbil Arkın’s personal collection and their display in the purpose-built museum successfully crowns the establishment of the Arkın University of Creative Arts and Design (ARUCAD). The museum, too, can be seen as the culmination of the artistic ambitions of Erbil Arkin who, as a young man, developed his passion for Auguste Rodin at a time when he was studying the arts himself.

Thirty-four original sculptures by Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), as well as those of his lover Camille Claudel and friends, Carrier-Belleuse and Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux. are on display at The Clock Tower, the headquarters of Arkin Group in Kyrenia.


The distinguished French artist is generally recognised as one of the greatest sculptors and has become immortalised through his masterpieces such as “The Thinker”, “Eve”, “The Kiss” and “The Eternal Idol”.


This exhibition of Erbil Arkin’s private collection aims to popularise the art of sculpture through the works of a world master and represents the degree of importance that is given to arts and art education. An exhibition of this scope and level is a first in Cyprus.

Visiting THE ARKIN RODIN COLLECTION GALLERY is free. However, within the framework of pandemic rules, art lovers can visit the gallery by making an appointment at 0392 650 11 11. The gallery will be open to visitors on weekdays and weekends between 10:00 and 19:00.

The Arkın Group of Companies

As Arkin Group, we took our first steps into the hospitality industry with the Colony Hotel, in Kyrenia; our first hotel in Cyprus. The following years saw the group expanding its contribution to North Cyprus tourism by opening the Arkin Palm Beach Hotel in Famagusta, a hotel with unprecedented quality and vision on the island.

Thanks to our successful growth graph, led by company founder, Erbil Arkin, the group moved into the tourism and yachting sectors as well as hotel management.

This was followed, in 2017, with a move into the education sector with the opening of ARUCAD, the Arkin University of Creative Arts and Design (ARUCAD). This is a thematic art university that is wholly dedicated to the fields of art, design and communication.

With our 25 years of experience, we have continued our activities in tourism and other sectors with our successful business ventures in Europe, South America and the Middle East.
